as usual we are loving the new marc jacobs campaign! his ads are always so colourful and perfect and always with a lot of attitude! they are so good! model Ginta Lapina is doing a wonderful job here! i have a secret crush on her hair even though it would be extremly impractical!

le cake

double denim bbq tonight in honour of fee's birthday. i offered my services for cake duty which made no sense as i cant cook! but....
ok i havent tasted it yet but i think it (she) looks AMAZING! high fives all round its very exciting.
i documented the decorating with a couple of snap shots!

cakeslide
its a chocolate cake, packet mix of course, and we had a bunt tin which bakes the cake with a hole in it! anyone wanting to make a barbie cake seriously get one of these!
the icing! betty crocker vanilla in a tub! its all about cheating here!! its really tasty and thick! i dyed it blue...in honour of the double denim theme of the party!
ps dear food dye makers why dont you make the bottles with dropper lids!! i had a dropper at home and it made colouring the icing so easy!
decorations are smarties and the pink rosettes come from a can!! its a can of icing you can buy at the supermarket with different nozzels! i know!
and i'm boring you all now but i'm very excited about how she turned out.
she's beautiful!

happy hump day

happy hump day everyone! we are almost to the weekend!! yay!!
in the mean time i have something yummy to share with you all! its going to have you running to the supermarket in your lunch break!

....warm tomato salad! YUM!
18561

This is a winner! Its tasty and so quick to make!
All you need is:

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 punnet yellow grape tomatoes, halved
1 punnet red cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves

cut all your tomatoes in half. heat oil and garlic in a fry pan and add the tomatoes.
cook for about 4 mins or until tomatoes are warm but not mush!
pour into a bowl and add the vinegar, basil and salt and pepper!
finished!
it’s a great salad for a bbq!
i like to toast big chunks of sourdough bread for croutons under the grill with a little salt and olive oil for some added crunch to the salad. just throw them in with the basil at the end!
